Vintage collection 2016

Still making but have now launched my new products for 2016 on my website. The latest makes a gift wrap bag including tags, string, brown paper and fabric flower toppers. The tags are prety enough to replace a card

A lace patterned knitted scarf, with added embellishments of a diamante pin and a cameo and butterfly pin with faux silk ribbon. These scarfs are decorative rather than for warmth. Have enough wool to knit another the same design, then will move onto something different.

Currently working on a selection of Swarovski earrings Enjoying making them but not going to be cheap as plan to start with 12 designs, stock including the display pair 6 of each, eek!!!!! My sister has offered to give selling them a go, fingers crossed.

This year I am giving a final push to make this business work. At the end of 2016? well will have to do some soul searching. I say this every year and every year my passion for making drives me but tbh after running a business on and off for 37 years think it may get to crunch time. I know we all do it spend money on new ideas and directions but comes a time when you have to step back and be sensible and say 'enough is enough'. The vintage style is my way of going out possibly with a bang.

  1. I love the scarf. Fingers crossed that 2016 is good for you xxx

  2. Wow, all so beautiful. Hope you have a great 2016. Creative Blessings, Tracy x

  3. Busy busy! I love the scarf pattern, so delicate and perfect when spring arrives!

  4. Beautiful, lacy tags! You're very creative! They look like a lot of effort went into them for sure! I keep thinking about trying to sell some of my crochet. In fact, in December I sold $30 worth of stuff. But I find that making to sell takes some of the enjoyment and relaxation out of it for me. Anyway, your scarves are beautiful too! I haven't made one of those in quite some time, since when I fumbled around with knitting (and it didn't quite work out). I'm on an afghan kick right now. LOL

  5. I think the vintage style really suits your makes Caroline, I'm coming up to the end of my third year as a business and it's such a steep learning curve.
